"Saints of Imperfection"

Yeah, that was pretty bleh.   I suspect of the episodes that had to be rewritten and reshot this was the one that ended up closest to it's original form...  Just a hunch.

*Of course finding Spock's shutte was a fake out.  This stuff is going to drag out GILLIGAN'S ISLAND style for the rest of the season.

*A very contrived way for Tyler to rejoin the cast purely to make more artificial drama for Michael.

*Stamets hardly flinches when Tyler enters the bridge, almost like he knows Hugh's death will be reversed by the end of the episode   It's also oh-so-convenient that Ash is right where he needs to be so he can apologize to Hugh in a future episode.   This is the kind of stuff that makes creative writing teachers into alcholoics.

*Something being explained as a Section 31 black op is a cheap and lazy way to handwave stupid plot points or continuity violations.   Isn't it great we are going to get a whole new show of just that?

*The mycelial network decided to remove Hugh's clothes and give him a spiffy haircut, just so the show could slip in a gooch shot.   Always pushing the boundaries of tasteful TV, that's our STAR TREK.

*Despite half the hull being eaten away any bets that plot point isn't going to even blip in next weeks episode?   It's taking weeks in spacedock to fix the Enterprise but I bet dollars to donuts the Discovery magically repairs itself, just in time to do  'A very special Saru episode' where he liberates his people -- because we just happen to be in the same neck of the woods as the Kelpian homeworld.

*Please don't let the Red Angel Maguffin have anything to do with future Spock, time travel or red matter.   The mention of tachyons does not inspire hope.

We will see. I'd be surprised if a series that has leant so heavily in the direction of an overarching narrative that bleeds from episode to episode, as opposed to standalone episodes, just simply skips over this.

Maybe they can do what the Jon Pertwee Doctor Who used to do to those tachyons and reverse the polarity and come up with a better episode next time? :^D
